Pownal School Gear is still available
Lots of student and families purchased the Pownal Gear before Christmas, but this sale is on-going. If you would like to order any of the items, you can still do it. Get an order form from the office.

Notice to Parents
For the safety of our students, we will not drop students off at their homes without seeing a person or vehicle. We have preferred seeing a person at the door or in the window. If you are comfortable having your child dropped off without the bus driver seeing anyone, please send us a written note confirming this. If we cannot contact a parent, the student(s) will be brought back to school to wait for someone to come and pick them up.

A Big Thank You!
A big thank you for the following parents who came out this past Christmas vacation to put up our skating rink: Tim Giddinge, Trisha and Mark Vachon, Steve Wescott, Jon Morris, Jesse Leveille, Paul Carignan, Mr. "D" and members of the Pownal Fire Department!!

We've recently had about 20 skaters using the rink during their recess time. If you have any skates that are not being used, could you consider donating them to the school? As usual, thanks!
